Wilson turns to shore power in Mo i Rana
One of Europe’s largest short sea operators, Wilson, has completed all ship operations in the port of Mo i Rana using shore power. The company noted that recently its cargo vessel Wilson Ruhr completed all operations at Rana Industriterminal using shore power.
Both Wilson and the terminal have cooperated in making shore power available at Mo i Rana. Following operations by Wilson Ruhr, Wilson Perth also got to use the facility a week later.
The company further noted that Rana Industriterminal spent time and resources to get the facility up and running, and that progress in Mo i Rana is closely monitored by Wilson who is willing to contribute to this effort, aiming to enable shore power utilization for as many of its vessels as possible.
The company called on other ports to follow the example of Mo i Rana as it is eager to use shore power on all its vessels in all ports where shore power is available. Wilson’s fleet consists of about 130 vessels, ranging from 1500-8500 dwt, where of 110 are owned by the Wilson group.
